Pastors Counseling: What We Do
Our pastors counseling sessions are for pastors, ministry leaders, church leadership and other spiritual authorities who are struggling with sexual purity, lust, pornography and sex addiction. Sex addiction is rampant in our society and church leadership is not immune to it. If anything, people who are called into ministry face more of a battle and temptations because if they can be lead astray, everyone who follows them will be more susceptible too.
I am sure you have heard of the stories about the pastors whose secret sins were revealed. Nothing is more damaging to a church than a ministry leader who does not keep his lust of the flesh, eyes and pride in check. They may have thought that no one would find out, that they hid it well enough and that it isn't a big deal. But when their actions and addiction came to light, the church was devastated.
Two things usually happen to churches when a pastor's sex addiction is discovered. First, it breaks the hearts of the congregation, and they lose faith in their leadership. How is a man of God supposed to teach, admonish and minister to others if he can't even keep himself in check? Second, it allows people to say, "See I told you so, they are no different from anyone else." Pastors and ministry leaders need to seek help for their sex addiction before it's too late.
If you are a pastor or ministry leader struggling with sex addiction, our licensed counselors can help you. Break the bondage to lust and addiction. Your ministry, church and God-given calling is worth saving. We can help you get back on track and give you hope.
